Should I Wait Longer?

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks.

“I planted all 5 of them on 5/26/17. Two of the seeds germinated and were up on 5/29. The other three have not poked their heads up yet on 6/5/17. Should I wait longer, or seek new seeds? I treated them all the same. First time for this family. I normally raise native Hawaiian plants which take Much longer to germinate so any advice is appreciated.”

We need more information.

What method of germination was used?
How deep was the seed planted?
What is the soil temp?
Are they in a humidity dome?
If yes… What is the humidity?
How damp was the soil when planted?
Has it been watered since planting?
If yes… How often? Was it watered from the edge or was water poured directly over the germinating seed?
What type of water was used? (Tap, distilled, RO)
How damp is the soil now?
Is there a light over the seeds?
If yes… What type of light? What is the wattage? What is the color temperature rating? How far from the soil is the light? Is it left on all the time?


Where did the seeds come from?
What strain are they?
How old are the seeds?

This info will give us an idea of what is going on.
